A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

Un sitio imprescindible en el mapa gastronómico de Alicante, con una barra que se ha convertido en un referente en España. Experiencia no les falta: empezaron en 1979. Se definen a sí mismos como “un delicatessen del tapeo”, cuyo punto de partida es la excelencia en las materias primas: verduras de su propio huerto ecológico, los pescados y mariscos más frescos de la lonja, las mejores carnes del mercado, pan 100% artesanal que elaboran a diario en su propio obrador…

Geni, la gran anfitriona de La Taberna del Gourmet, sabe cómo transformar esos ingredientes de primera en tapas, montaditos y raciones que son todo un homenaje a los sabores tradicionales. Si a su gran oferta gastronómica, añadimos una cuidada carta de vinos y una situación inmejorable, en una de las calles más comerciales y concurridas de la ciudad, el resultado es una barra animada y alegre cada día y a cualquier hora.

INSIDER tip

Si quieres comer sentado en su barra, comedor o terraza, conviene reservar... ¡suele estar abarrotado!

    Great selection of contemporary and traditional Spanish food. Wine list ok, selection quite local, ok if one looks for local specialty, however the Alicante area is not necessarily known for the best wines...but there are some “global” Spanish alternatives available. The food and most of the staff are great, unfortunately some staff is not up to par yet. International crowd, sometimes really annoying folks from up north of Europe, don’t know how to behave in a good Spanish locale.

    Great place for high quality Spanish cuisine. Fusion of traditional Spanish food with modern, foreign influence. Great wine list. Fresh sea food from the market, marvelous meats! A ten on my list, coming here every time when in Alicante.

    Eaten here on 3 occasions and always enjoyed the food and ambience. Great selection of wines, fabulous paella and bread make this a place always worth visiting! Great sister restaurant on the esplanade for breakfast too.

    Nice restaurant to be inside, wine selection is good (although if you buy by the glass they seem to be a little tight on the portions,my Rioja was gone in 2 sips at a steed £4 euro a glass, we had the Burrata and pear starter to share which was simply excellent, and the the creamy seafood paella to follow which was tasty yes but hardly any seafood in it and not a huge portion either so to be honest it left me feeling disappointed, £70 for the meal, too expensive I didn’t think we got good value for money here at all. Also loads of waiters in side running around but all left us looking at dirty plates for 15 mins!

    Excellent. We had the croquettes, pardon peppers and baked goats cheese with honey to share as appetisers / starters. For main Paella - veg and pork, all were exemplary. The puddings were just as special. An absolute treat and well worth the €120 for two adults one child. Worth noting that they also have a phenomenal children’s menu, my daughter (4) had medium / rare steak and chips which were excellent. I will go back and regularly as best place we have found in a while.

    Great food and excellent wine selection. We were with a group of eight and service was prompt and friendly. We liked the different seafood paella’s in particular.

    I dont think this restaurant lived up to the Tripadvisor hype. We ordered a bottle of wine which we had to top up ourselves, I was presented with a hot dish in prep for a thai green curry which was cold by the time the food arrived. The green curry was actually yellow and there was nothing green in sight and the meat of poor quality. The chocolate mousse was ok but not great, for the price would definitely not recommend!

    We visited as a family of four adults. The staff was not as attentive as I think they should be. The order was taken down on the run. We got the feeling of taking time from the waitor if asking questions. And no questions asked from the staff about our needs other than the musts. Water was provided after half the meal The food was not a Gourmet meal, but a Good meal. We had the large testing menue. The tuna and mozzarella stuck out and also the dessert. I got a feeling the place lost some of the genuine spark.
